it’s taken BMW a while to enter this segment, but as with most things BMW does, it has done so with aplomb.
How this new Bimmer fares as an all-rounder against the Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class remains to be seen, but if the 3 Series brings with it the expectation of being the natural driver’s car to beat, this new version, in isolation at least, look to be more than capable of carrying the mantle and maintaining what many consider to be a hard-fought and well-earned reputation...
The new 2019 BMW X5 range kicks off with the X5 30d and 40i petrol and diesel models, which offer all the prestige SUV that anyone really needs. But, of course, some people only want the biggest and the best, which is where the X5 M50d tested here comes in.
Before Mercedes-Benz has had the chance to lob its all-new GLE into Australia, BMW has thrown its new X5 SUV into the ring.
You told us you don't trust the traditional 'Car of the Year' format favoured by most publishers, and you wanted to know more about our own personal faves, objectivity be damned. Well, here it is. Get the full story right here. NOTE: This video was first published on December 18.
The G20 delivers in a big way. If there’s one car BMW cannot afford to stuff up, it’s the 3 Series, and like its equally impressive new-generation 5 Series and X5, this one stakes a bold claim to class leadership that we’re looking forward to putting to the test. To say the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, Jaguar XE and Alfa Romeo Giulia have their work cut out is an understatement...
We didn't really feel the M5 needed more, but then "enough" isn't a word we're too familiar with... A NOTE on the video: "Estoril in Spain" – silly Tony. He knows, of course, that it's in Portugal!
The new M2 Competition is a better car than its M2 predecessor, though not through any one component, including the new engine. Rather, it’s the sum of each and every component added and tweak made to the chassis itself that has produced a more precise, if not quicker, M-Car than that which it replaces. In the end, it's still the best M-Car under $150K that BMW builds...
There’s no doubt the new 2019 BMW X4 is a vastly improved thing over its predecessor. In fact, I’d go one better than that and say it’s probably the closest thing yet to a BMW sedan experience from an SUV in this segment.
This is the muscly new BMW M2 Competition, which will kick off in Australia from AU$99,900. That's a lot of money, but this is a lot of car.
The reborn BMW 8 Series has debuted at this week's Paris motor show, ready to take on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and all premium coupes. What do you think?
